Waylon Murray would appear to have signed with the Lions.
While we aren’t able to officially confirm this, I have it on reasonably good authority that Murray is already in Joburg and will presumably start training with the Lions Currie Cup squad who, if further rumours are to be believed, will be coached by John Mitchell.
An interview earlier this year revealed that the big centre was prepared to give the Sharks one last go in the Super 14, but since he again played only a bit part in this year’s campaign, it is probably not all that surprising that he’s opted to throw in his lot with his former mentor Dick Muir, who we understand has been chasing him ever since accepting the Lions post earlier this year.
The Bulls were understood to also be in the hunt for Murray’s signature.
Good luck, Waylon. We’ll miss you, but hopefully this could be the start of big things for you down in Lions country.Tweet
